The Artist-in-Residence program offers professional artists the opportunity to pursue their artisitic discipline while being surrounded by the refuge's inspiring landscapes and wildlife. The program seeks professional artists whose work is related to the refuge's interpretive themes and supports the mission of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
The program provides an artist with uninterrupted time to pursue their work and the opportunity to engage and inspire the public through outreach programs. Refuge housing is provided.
The artist is required to present several public programs during their residency. The programs must be related to their experience as the artist-in-residence and can be demonstrations, talks, exploratory walks, or performances.
The artist is also required to donate an original piece of art to the refuge.
